Video: Peter Schiff at Dem convention – Hey, let’s ban corporate profits! Democrats readily agree

The Marxicrats show their true face.

Heh.

Sep 5, 2012 by – Posing as an anti-business crusader, Peter Schiff found a number of DNC delegates and attendees who support explicitly outlawing profitability. We deliberately avoided speaking with the occupy protestors camping outside in tents to get a more “mainstream” Democratic perspective!

Video: Despite majority of Democrat delegates vociferously disapproving, God and Jerusalem reinstated into Dem platform

This would be hilarious if it weren’t so pathetic. The Democrats are in full meltdown now. The party is imploding before our eyes. Watch the video and you clearly see that the delegates opposed putting God and Jerusalem back into the platform. When the guy lied and said the ‘yays’ had it, the delegates booed and hissed. This is the modern Democrat party. Radical to their Marxist, Israel-hating core.

Jerusalem Language Deleted To Reflect Obama Policy

Washington TimesCHARLOTTE — A storm is headed toward Florida, and there may be another one en route to Charlotte. The first is a hurricane, the second an issues forum that may include as many as 20,000 participants.

Either way, there is an ill wind blowing for each city.

The Democratic National Convention is endorsing a political platform for the organizers of a program called the “Jumah at the DNC.” It begins with a jummah prayer on Friday, August 31 and ends on September 2,

On the surface it appears that the event, organized by the Bureau of Indigenous Muslim Affairs (BIMA), is cultural fun for the whole family whose only political focus is Muslims’ right to assembly, but it is much more than that.

The DNC lists the assembly as an “official function” and claims that the leaders of the program are typical of the DNC community. The group is hardly “mainstream,” being represented by Siraj Wahhaj, who will be the “Grand Imam” for the gathering.

Wahhaj rose to prominence on the Muslim speaking circuit after he became the first Muslim to give an invocation to the United States Congress. Following 9/11, his fame as a moderate Muslim increased when he stated, “I now feel responsible to preach, actually to go on a jihad against extremism.”

The reality of Wahhaj’s efforts is not as moderate as the image he projects, however.

Wahhaj and the co-leader of the Charlotte event, Jibril Hough, are both heavily involved in the separatist American Islamist movement. Many of the participants in the “Jumah at the DNC” will most likely represent radical networks that have long-time, but little-known, operations in the Charlotte region.

There are two forms of lying that are permitted in Islam under certain circumstances, taqiyya and kitman.  Such circumstances are typically those that advance the cause of Islam – in some cases by gaining the trust of non-believers in order to draw out their vulnerability and defeat them.

Basically, taqiyya is lying by saying something that isn’t true.

Charlotte’s jumah will be a prime example of taqiyya. It will use the convention as cover for “town hall” activities designed to create awareness of the victimization of Muslims and Islamophobia. The Obama Administration’s pandering to Muslims will add considerable strength to the gathering and its agenda. Continue reading

Trailer: Ayn Rand & the Prophecy of Atlas Shrugged

And so it was. And so it is.

Nearly every socialist flake, drone, and twit characterized in Atlas Shrugged can be found today in the Democrat party and its media, as well as among Republican RINOs.

Via Moonbattery – No one who has witnessed Hopey & Change or the decades of decay that laid the groundwork for it can deny that Ayn Rand was right: See the Facebook page for where to watch the whole movie online.

by – SPECIAL SCREENING EVENT JANUARY 17! Get tickets at http://atlasshrugged-thedoc.com Ayn Rand & the Prophecy of Atlas Shrugged is a feature length documentary film that examines the resurging interest in Ayn Rand’s epic and controversial 1957 novel and the validity of its dire prediction for America.

Set in what novelist and philosopher Rand called ‘the day after tomorrow,’ Atlas depicts an America in crisis, brought to her knees by a corrupt establishment of government regulators and businessmen with political pull.

Despite critical scorn and continued derision from intellectuals on all sides of the ideological spectrum Atlas has remained a popular favorite and today sells more copies than it ever did.

Why? Because – as evidenced by pointed and frequent references to Rand and Atlas Shrugged in the media — an increasing number of Americans — right or wrong — see their society devolving into a nightmare scenario like the one Rand projected over a half century ago.

Ayn Rand and the Prophecy of Atlas Shrugged looks into Rand’s background for the ideas and philosophy that inspired and shaped her novel and seeks to determine whether America is indeed headed for the disastrous outcome she predicted.

Huma Abedin and her unemployed Wiener move into sprawling $3.3M Manhattan apt.

Liberals are paracites, plain and simple.

Being a part of America’s 5th column has its benefits. It’s all in the fine tradition of Democrat hypocrisy. They despise “the rich” and yet sponge off of their wealth every chance they get. In return, the Liberal elite expect big favors, which Democrats are always happy to deliver.

Neither Weiner nor Muslim Brotherhood plant Huma Abedin ever spent a day in the private sector. All their earnings and goodies have come either from the sweat of American taxpayers or donations from mysterious benefactors. If the IRS weren’t pre-occupied tormenting conservatives, they’d probably have a field day with these two quislings.

NY Post – Anthony Weiner’s wife not only took him back, she took him back in style — moving with the shamed pol into a luxurious, $3.3 million Manhattan pad owned by a deep-pocketed Democratic donor, The Post has learned.

After quitting his Queens House seat amid a notorious sexting scandal, Weiner and beautiful, brainy spouse Huma Abedin, a top aide to Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, landed in the sprawling, 12th-floor Park Avenue trophy residence owned by Rosen Partners LLC, which is headed by close Clinton pal Jack Rosen, records show.

Rosen — who oversees the American Jewish Congress — is an influential international political force. He’s been a guest at the White House, flies the Clintons in his private plane, and has poured money into both Bill and Hillary Clinton’s election campaigns over the years, according to campaign-finance records.

He has also contributed several thousand dollars to Weiner’s coffers, and is a top Obama bundler, donating more than $500,000 to the president’s re-election efforts.

The market-rate rent on Weiner and Abedin’s 2,120-square-foot, four-bedroom, 3.5-bathroom apartment — where the disgraced pol has said he spends his days doing laundry and changing baby son Jordan’s diapers — is at least $12,000 to $14,000 a month, real-estate sources said.

A much smaller 1,476-square-foot, two-bedroom unit on a lower floor recently rented for $10,000, records show.

Some Weiner-watchers are stunned that the pol, who gave up his $174,000 salary when he resigned, and Huma, who makes around $155,000 annually, can afford the posh pad at 254 Park Ave. South at East 20th Street.

“It’s a ridiculously expensive place,” said a top Democratic fund-raising source with deep ties to the Clintons.

“Everyone assumes they live there for free, thanks to a donor, a friend of Bill and Hillary, or even just someone with an empty place who is connected,” the source said.

But Hillary Clinton spokesman Philippe Reines insisted that Weiner and Abedin pay “market rate’’ for the pad.

“They are a two-income family and are more than capable of paying their market-rate rent,” he said, declining to disclose exactly what the couple pays.

Weiner hasn’t landed steady work since leaving office, according to sources. But some friends of the onetime rising star said he has consulting work and will have no problem exceeding his congressional salary.

Federal officials such as Abedin face restrictions on receiving gifts and must disclose their financial dealings to ensure that their decision-making isn’t compromised by private interests.

As one of Hillary’s key confidantes, Abedin is in a position where she could exert considerable influence on America’s top diplomat. Continue reading

Video: Prager University – Proving media bias

An important and entertaining analysis of the enemedia. The Democrat media complex truly is no better than that of Pravda under the Soviets or the propaganda mill of Nazi Germany. The motto of the mainstream media ought to be: ‘Every Day Making Goebbels Proud!’

Aug 6, 2012 by – Is there a left tilt to the media’s coverage of the news? If there is, can it be proven? And if it can be proven, can the consequences be quantified in a meaningful way? Acclaimed UCLA Professor of Political Science and Economics, Tim Groseclose, has the startling answers in this new Prager University course. Whatever you do, don’t miss his final conclusion.

Diana West: Huma Abedin and Form 86

Every part of Washington is infested with Islamists. But don’t worry, once a terrorist or terrorist-supporting Muslim is given an official position of any kind, then suddenly he or she is deemed ‘clean.’ It’s a massive laundering scheme.

“So, Ms. Abedin, let me get this straight: Your folks, and you, too, worked with a guy who founded a terrorist organization linked to al-Qaida, your mom’s on the board of a group banned in Israel for supporting Hamas, and you want top-secret clearance to work for the secretary of state.

Then what happened?”

Diana West – Two weeks ago, I wrote about the handful of House Republicans, led by Rep. Michele Bachmann of Minnesota, who sent letters in June to inspectors general at five government departments, asking them to investigate evidence of Muslim Brotherhood influence on U.S. government policymaking. The Muslim Brotherhood is a global Islamic movement engaged, according to the group’s own internal document, on a “grand jihad” in North America to destroy “Western civilization from within.” To date, the inspectors general haven’t responded.

Nonetheless, Bachmann and her colleagues — Trent Franks of Arizona, Louie Gohmert of Texas, Tom Rooney of Florida and Lynn Westmoreland of Georgia — have focused attention on the disastrous policy of bringing members of known Muslim Brotherhood fronts and their associates into Uncle Sam’s policymaking chain. The representatives’ letters went to inspectors general at State, Justice, Defense, Homeland Security and the Office of the National Intelligence Director. These government nerve centers are increasingly advancing policies American leaders once would have excoriated for supporting the enemies of this country.

Is it by chance, for example, that director of national intelligence James Clapper, reading from prepared notes, absurdly described the Muslim Brotherhood to the House Intelligence Committee last year as a “largely secular” organization? Is it an accident that in June the State Department issued a visa to Hani Nour Eldin of Egypt to meet with senior White House officials? Eldin is a member of Gama’a al-Islamiyya, a terrorist organization once led by Omar Abdel Rahman, “the blind sheikh” convicted of the first attack on the World Trade Center. In the person of Rahman’s successor, Refai Ahmed Taha, the group is one of the five signatories of Osama bin Laden’s February 1998 “World Islamic Front Statement Urging Jihad Against Jews and Crusaders.” Isn’t it imperative to review the policy mechanism that permitted a member of bin Laden’s jihad front into the White House?

According to our elected officials, the answer is no. Not one House member, Democrat, Republican or tea party, has come out in solidarity with the National Security Five. Typically, the mainstream media have reacted not by digging up facts themselves (what are they, journalists?), but rather by throwing mud on Michele Bachmann. “Stop ‘witch-hunting’ Huma Abedin, top aide to Hillary Clinton,” is the war cry from CNN to USA Today. Many conservative outlets, such as Fox and The Washington Examiner, are strangely silent.

To be sure, one of the Bachmann letters notes the case of Huma Abedin — a confidante of the secretary of state whose family has dense ties to Muslim Brotherhood organizations. She has become the human face used to distract from the overarching national security issue. Honest answers to the wide array of questions the House members have asked would expose high elected officials in both parties as dupes of our enemies, at best. The American people would find out how Uncle Sam came to support al-Qaida in Libya; Muslim Brothers in Egypt; and, now, al-Qaida and Muslim Brothers in Syria. An honest investigation would spotlight the internal process that led Uncle Sam to sponsor a new international counterterrorism organization without Israel. The shameful fact is, our power-elites don’t want these questions answered because the answers would threaten their hold on power.

Bachmann & Co. haven’t alleged wrongdoing on Abedin’s part. Rather, their question turns on the process that permitted a person with close family ties to an array of world Islamic movements and figures hostile to the United States to gain the security clearance Abedin requires to serve alongside the secretary of state.

I looked over the lengthy Form 86 that federal employees fill out to apply for national security positions. One portion is devoted to an applicant’s relatives, with a question about relatives’ affiliations with any “foreign movement.” If Abedin answered fully — and there are stiff penalties for failing to do so — she would have noted, for starters, that her mother, Saleha Abedin, belongs to the Muslim Sisterhood (the Brotherhood’s auxiliary, primarily for relatives of prominent Brothers) and serves on the board of the International Islamic Council for Dawah and Relief, a group banned in Israel for supporting Hamas. Saleha Abedin has been a representative of the Muslim World League, whose affiliates have been charged by the U.S. government with funding terrorism. Any ensuing investigation would turn up Saleha’s work with the Institute of Muslim Minority Affairs, where she edits the journal that Huma, too, worked on for a dozen years. That same institute was founded by Huma’s father in Saudi Arabia with the assistance and long-term involvement of Abdullah Omar Naseef. Naseef was secretary-general of the Muslim World League and also founded the Rabita Trust, a U.S.-designated international terrorist organization with ties to al-Qaida.

There’s more, but just imagine the light dawning on the background-checker: So, Ms. Abedin, let me get this straight: Your folks, and you, too, worked with a guy who founded a terrorist organization linked to al-Qaida, your mom’s on the board of a group banned in Israel for supporting Hamas, and you want top-secret clearance to work for the secretary of state.

Then what happened?

Commies in the White House: Obama, Jarrett, and Axelrod, all connected to Communist Frank Marshall Davis

Commies and Islamists are the only people Barack Obama has ever associated with, and he brought them all with him into the White House. The modern Democrat party is nothing but a long, 5th column Conga line.

Via Trevor Loudon’s New Zeal:

Paul Kengor PhD, author of The Communist, a biography of Barack Obama‘s boyhood mentor and ardent communist, Frank Marshall Davis, has penned an important article for The American Spectator.

David Axelrod, Valerie Jarrett

It seems that not only Obama was connected to Frank Marshall Davis, but the president’s two most trusted friends and advisers Valerie Jarrett and David Axelrod, can also trace their political heritage back to Davis and the Chicago Communist Party USA of the 1940s.

From The American Spectator:

As readers of this site are aware, I’ve just published a book on Barack Obama’s mentor, Frank Marshall Davis. No president in the long history of this republic has had a mentor like Obama’s. Frank Marshall Davis was a literal — and I mean literal — card-carrying member of Communist Party USA. I publish Davis’s Communist Party number (47544) on the cover of the book, and fill an appendix with declassified FBI documents and Soviet archival material. Those documents reveal a Davis so suspicious that he was placed on the federal government’s Security Index, which meant he could be immediately arrested if war broke out between the United States and USSR. With that sort of pro-Soviet influence throughout his adolescence (1970-79), Barack Obama would have trouble getting a security clearance for an entry-level government job, let alone sit in the Oval Office.

Nonetheless, Obama sits in that Oval Office today thanks to four factors: the American voter, a scandalously biased media, a skillful election strategy charted by David Axelrod, and the careful nurturing of Valerie Jarrett.

And most remarkable, Axelrod’s and Jarrett’s backgrounds and mentors connect to Obama’s background and mentor in a most intriguing way. It’s a stunning story, hard to believe. Follow closely:

Frank Marshall Davis, like Obama, found himself, his career, and his political calling in Chicago. It was there in the 1940s that he first began working for communist front-groups, joined the Communist Party, and wrote for and became the founding editor-in-chief of the Chicago Star, the city’s Communist Party newspaper — where Davis kicked off the newspaper with a column (July 6, 1946) pledging to advance “fundamental change.” In these capacities, Davis, Obama’s mentor, would work with the political ancestors of David Axelrod and Valerie Jarrett.

I lay that out at length in the book, with all the documentation. Here, I will try to be brief and to the point.

In 1940, Frank Marshall Davis got involved in one of the worst communist fronts: the American Peace Mobilization. Congress called the group “one of the most notorious and blatantly communist fronts ever organized in this country” and “one of the most seditious organizations which ever operated in the United States.” The group’s objective (in 1940) was to stop the United States from entering the war against Hitler. Why? Because Hitler had signed a non-aggression pact with Stalin, and American communists, being loyal Soviet patriots who literally swore allegiance to the USSR, saluted Stalin.

One of the first examples I found of Frank Marshall Davis getting noticed by Congress was a 1944 Congressional report listing his involvement in the American Peace Mobilization. That same report also cited the involvement of a fellow Chicagoan named Robert Taylor. Taylor was the grandfather of Valerie Jarrett.

Taylor also served with Davis on another communist front, the Chicago Civil Liberties Committee, whose members masqueraded as civil-rights crusading “progressives.” The two served on the board together.

Both Taylor and Davis would have frequently encountered another politically active Chicagoan, Vernon Jarrett. Vernon Jarrett and Frank Marshall Davis worked together on the small publicity team of the communist-controlled Packinghouse Workers Union, which Frank Marshall Davis publicly called for nationalizing. Vernon Jarrett would one day become Valerie Jarrett’s father-in-law.

So, here we have Obama’s mentor, Frank Marshall Davis, working with the literal relatives of Valerie Jarrett — all serving together in Chicago’s Communist Party circles in the 1940s.

And what about David Axelrod?

Axelrod is a native New Yorker who, in the 1970s, found himself and his political calling in Chicago, where he went to college and worked for newspapers as a political journalist. (See my March 2012 Spectator profile of David Axelrod.) There, Axelrod was mentored by the Canter family, namely David Canter. The Canter family’s Soviet/communist roots were deep. David and his family had lived in Moscow just before Chicago. His father, Harry Canter, worked there as an official translator of Lenin’s writings. Harry, who had been secretary of the Boston Communist Party and ran for governor of Massachusetts on the Communist Party ticket, did this as a literal employee of Stalin’s government.

After that service to the Soviets, the Canter crew headed to Chicago, a hot-bed for American communists. They worked with Frank Marshall Davis in writing communist propaganda for the Packinghouse Workers Union, in teaching at the communist Abraham Lincoln School, in marching in Chicago’s May Day parades, and in the pages of the Chicago Star. In fact, when Davis and his comrades sold the Chicago Star to something called the Progressive Publishing Company in September 1948, Harry Canter was one of the small group of board members doing the purchase.

There are several key names here. Let me sum up:

Frank Marshall Davis mentored Barack Obama. The Canter family mentored David Axelrod, who got Obama elected president. Vernon Jarrett’s daughter-in-law is Valerie Jarrett, and Robert Taylor was Valerie Jarrett’s grandfather. Jarrett is Obama’s top presidential adviser. In other words, Obama’s political ancestor worked with the political ancestors of Axelrod and Jarrett.

Oh, and they all called themselves progressives.

Amazing, but true. You can’t make this up. The ghosts of Chicago’s political past are alive and well in Washington today. Today’s political family at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue can be traced back to the political family of Chicago in the 1940s. It’s all in the (political) family.

There is no doubt that Barack Obama was marked out for high office at an early age.

It is also undeniable that pro-Soviet communists worked to enable Obama at almost every step of his career.

Manchurian Candidate, anyone?

Muslim Brotherhood front group CAIR demands firing of former Iranian CIA operative Reza Kahlili

 

It’s time we get every politician in America on record whether they support CAIR, the Muslim Brotherhood front group. And every politician who defends CAIR must then be voted out of office.

One cannot be sworn to protect America from enemies foreign and domestic and support groups like CAIR. At least 14 CAIR officials and employees have either been investigated, charged, indicted or convicted in terror-related cases. Wake the hell up America.

WND – WASHINGTON – A former Iranian CIA operative, now an expert lecturer with the Defense Department, is being targeted by the Council on American-Islamic Relations, a Muslim Brotherhood front group, because he “renounced Islam and began the quest to find the real God.”

CAIR, based in Washington, D.C., is calling on the Defense Department to fire Reza Kahlili, a frequent contributing writer to WND, in part, a press release from the group states, because he became a Christian and revealed his change of faith in a commentary in WND.

“They actually cite my change of faith as a principal reason for targeting me,” Kahlili told WND in a phone interview. “I thought once I left Iran for America I wouldn’t have to worry about that kind of persecution.”

Khalili uses a pseudonym and guards his anonymity because of death threats he faces from The Islamic Republic of Iran.

Among the other reasons CAIR says it wants Kahlili driven out of the Defense Department is because of his documented revelations that:

  • Iranian agents are “coordinating operations out of [U.S.] mosques and Islamic centers”;
  • Iran already has nuclear weapons; and
  • Iranian agents have infiltrated the United States through the Muslim Brotherhood’s Muslim Students Association.”

Kahlili is an expert lecturer for the Defense Department’s Joint Counterintelligence Training Academy where his identity is protected by means of audio-only lectures.

The former spy in the Iranian Revolutionary Guard also serves on the newly formed Task Force on National and Homeland Security, an advisory board authorized by Congress. He is the author of the award-winning book “A Time to Betray” and regularly appears in national and international media as an expert on Iran and counterterrorism in the Middle East. He has been featured on ABC, CBS, CNN, CBN, C-Span, BBC, Fox News, MSNBC, ZDF, Forbes, the Christian Science Monitor, the Washington Post, the Washington Times and numerous other media outlets in addition to WND.

“I always believed in my heart, though endangering my life as well as of my family, that my activity on spying on the regime ruling Iran was not only in defense of democracy and freedom for Iranians, but also for the security of America and the free world,” Kahlili told WND. “It truly hurts me that CAIR suggests otherwise.”

He spent an idyllic childhood in Tehran, the capital of Iran, surrounded by a close-knit upper middle-class family and two spirited boyhood friends. The Iran of his youth allowed Reza to think and act freely, and even indulge a penchant for rebellious pranks in the face of the local mullahs.

His political and personal freedoms flourished while he continued his education in America during the ’70s. He returned to Iran shortly after the revolution eager to help rebuild his country, honestly believing that freedom and democracy would prevail and lead his country into a glorious future.

Even though most Iranians had enjoyed varying degrees of success under the shah, the Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini’s message resonated with a population weary of oppression and desperate for the political choice denied them under the shah. To this end, Reza joined the Revolutionary Guards, an elite force that served Khomeini.

But instead of finding a new beginning for his country, he discovered a tyrannical ayatollah bent on plunging Iran into a dark age of religious fundamentalism and causing his fellow countrymen to turn on each other. Shaken to his very core after witnessing the atrocities at Evin Prison, atrocities that hit very close to home, a shattered and disillusioned Reza embarked on a mission that would change his life forever. He returned to America and emerged as “Wally,” a spy for the CIA.

Counterintelligence, coded communications, escape tactics and evasion, dominated his new life. He risked exposure daily and after several close calls, he managed to leave Iran. His CIA activities continued in Europe for a few more years before he and his family finally moved to America.

After the 9/11 attacks, Kahlili activated a handful of sources within Iran and once again contacted the CIA. He continues as an active voice for a free Iran and works toward ending what he calls the “thugocracy” of the mullah’s regime. He now lives in California.
Though valued by America’s Defense and intelligence establishments, to CAIR Kahlili is an apostate, a traitor.

“This is yet another unfortunate example of our nation’s military and counterterrorism personnel being trained by individuals who weaken America’s security by promoting their own religious and political agendas,” wrote CAIR national Executive Director Nihad Awad in a letter sent to Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta.

The targeting of Kahlili is part of a broad pattern of attacks against consultants to government and law enforcement who recognize the threat posed by Muslim Brotherhood front groups such as CAIR and who offer first-hand experience in dealing with jihadists.

In announcing its sights were now set on Kahlili, CAIR itself pointed out other such experts it has targeted – with the Florida state police, others at the Defense Department and in other government agencies.

While CAIR bills itself as “a Muslim civil-rights organization” and its spokesmen are frequently represented as such on television news shows and in other media outlets, it is secretive about its funding sources – even to point of losing its Internal Revenue Service tax-exempt status as a non-profit organization.

Even more disturbing is what a review of criminal court documents, past IRS 990 tax records and Federal Election Commission documents reveal.

CAIR, unlike almost any other organization in the public eye, has been associated with a disturbing number of convicted terrorists or felons in terrorism probes, as well as suspected terrorists and active targets of terrorism investigations. Continue reading

Video: Stakelbeck on Terror – Losing Our Sons to Jihad

The deadly impact of radical Islam on two American families and the broader implications for the U.S. Plus, the forces of Islamism are working to silence critics of jihad–and they’ve set their sights on the UN as the place to do it.

Jul 18, 2012 by – On this week’s edition of the Stakelbeck on Terror show, we highlight a new documentary, called “Losing Our Sons.”

Leftist media blame Netanyahu for useful idiot torching himself

Some useful idiot who was clearly mentally disturbed tried to pull a ‘Tunisia’ in Tel Aviv. Israel’s media, which is every bit as rank and Leftist as that of America or Europe is trying to blame Benjamin Netanyahu for the moron’s attention grabber.

Thousands of 5th column Leftists have been protesting in Tel Aviv for “social justice,” a meaningless, catch-all Marxist phrase used by Leftists everywhere for anything to grow government and steal away individual freedom. Leaders in the movement are financially backed by George Soros and European and American socialsts.

Moshe Silman after he set himself on fire

Arutz Sheva – Broadcast media promote the idea that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu is to be blamed for the failed and self-described homeless businessman’s suicide attempt when he set himself on fire Saturday night.

While Israel’s print media reported that the man, Moshe Silman, blamed Prime Minister Netanyahu for his plight, Voice of Israel government radio quoted several people at the small “social justice” protest in Tel Aviv Saturday night and carefully built a scenario that concluded with a protester declaring, “Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu! Wake up.”

In case radio listeners did not accept the message, the news anchor repeated the quote.

Silman suffered burns over 80 percent of his body and is in serious but not life-threatening condition.

He read a speech at the rally, putting the blame squarely on Netanyahu and Finance Minister Yuval Steinitz for his despair, and then poured a liquid over himself and set himself on fire.

It turns out that he is not someone who simply never got out of the vicious cycle of poverty. He was running a shipping business from Tel Aviv for several years until it failed. After working as a cab driver, he suffered a stroke and moved to Haifa.

According to a psychiatric report published on Rotter.net, Silman was involved with drugs and theft as a teenager. Nor was this Silman’s first suicide attempt: he previously tried to kill himself several years ago as well.

The radio outlet first described his plight and his action and how people at the scene tried to save his life by dousing him with water. It then quoted demonstrators who said such a drastic action was bound to happen because of alleged government inaction to solve the problem of a shortage of homes and the high cost of housing, particularly in the metropolitan Tel Aviv area.

Prices in outlying areas of the country are far less.

Voice of Israel government radio is the most popular radio outlet in Israeli and also has been openly biased against Netanyahu for years, particularly since he beat Shimon Peres in the 1996 elections, upsetting the radio station’s and other mainstream media election night predictions.

Silman is not new to the protest movement, and he participated in last summer’s demonstrations.

He declared Saturday night that the government has refused his pleas for help and said he felt he had no choice other than to set himself on fire, copying a similar event in Tunisia last year that set off a peoples’ revolution against the regime. Economic development and social policies in the two countries, however, are vastly different.

Video: Obama – All business owners owe whatever success they have to the federal government and people like me

Yes, he’s that arrogant. That ridiculous. That Marxist.

According to the Commie-in-Chief, without the government Americans would never have invented, produced, innovated, or accomplished a damn thing. Only government can do that. And the bigger the government, the more successful a private enterprise.

“Look, if you’ve been successful, you didn’t get there on your own. You didn’t get there on your own...If you’ve got a business — you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.”

Yes, he is truly that brainwashed. That spiteful. That far gone.

Rush Limbaugh says:

From the Rush Limbaugh website:

RUSH: [...] I think it can now be said, without equivocation — without equivocation — that this man hates this country. He is trying — Barack Obama is trying — to dismantle, brick by brick, the American dream.

There’s no other way to put this.

There’s no other way to explain this.

He was indoctrinated as a child. His father was a communist. His mother was a leftist. He was sent to prep and Ivy League schools where his contempt for the country was reinforced. He moved to Chicago. It was the home of the radical-left movement. He hooks up to Ayers and Dohrn and Rashid Khalidi. He learns the ruthlessness of Cook County politics. This is what we have as a president: A radical ideologue, a ruthless politician who despises the country and the way it was founded and the way in which it became great.

He hates it.

Official White House transcript:

“There are a lot of wealthy, successful Americans who agree with me — because they want to give something back. They know they didn’t — look, if you’ve been successful, you didn’t get there on your own. You didn’t get there on your own. I’m always struck by people who think, well, it must be because I was just so smart. There are a lot of smart people out there. It must be because I worked harder than everybody else. Let me tell you something — there are a whole bunch of hardworking people out there.

If you were successful, somebody along the line gave you some help. There was a great teacher somewhere in your life. Somebody helped to create this unbelievable American system that we have that allowed you to thrive. Somebody invested in roads and bridges. If you’ve got a business — you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.”

Jazz Shaw writing at Hotair points out that Obama is channeling Elizabeth ‘Pocahontas’ Warren who proclaimed the same Marxist rhetoric. He writes:

The President decided to take pity on the blogosphere, it seems. As we struggle through a hot July weekend and a news cycle about as dry as the drought conditions outside, he decided to throw us a small bone as the transcript was released from some remarks he delivered last night at a fire station in Roanoke, Virginia.

The basic message here is that the President just wants to help. Times are tough and employers are having a hard time creating jobs. (::: cough ::: regulations ::: cough :::) But if you happen to be a business owner, the President wishes you the best. His help and good wishes, however, come with one small caveat… just remember that you didn’t build that business, so don’t get too cocky.

I suppose this is the part where you remind them that when you jack up their taxes, it’s really just so you can give that money back to all the other people who actually built their business. But seriously, this is straight off the pages of Elizabeth Warren’s mind bending remarks from early this year. Those came crashing down around her ears, even in some Left leaning circles, so it’s a serious puzzler as to why Barack Obama would try to pick up that ball and run with it. Rather revealing, though.

California passes “anti-Arizona” bill shielding illegal aliens from deportation

Adios California. You have been living “la vida loca” far too long.

Reuters via Gateway Pundit - California Democrats passed a pro-illegal alien immigration bill yesterday. The law, proud liberals called it their “anti-Arizona” immigration bill, will protect illegal immigrants from deportation.

The California Senate passed a bill on Thursday that seeks to shield illegal immigrants from status checks by local police and challenges Republican-backed immigration crackdowns in Arizona and other U.S. states.

The Democrat-led state Senate voted 21 to 13 to approve the California Trust Act, dubbed by supporters as the “anti-Arizona” bill. It blocks local police from referring a detainee to immigration officials for deportation unless that person has been convicted of a violent or serious felony.

“Today’s vote signals to the nation that California cannot afford to be another Arizona,” Assemblyman Tom Ammiano, a Democrat who sponsored the measure, said in a statement.

“The bill also limits unjust and onerous detentions for deportation in local jails of community members who do not pose a threat to public safety,” he added.

The bill has the backing of about 100 immigrant rights groups, police chiefs and mayors. It has already passed the Democrat-controlled state Assembly in a 47-26 vote and will go back to the Assembly for a concurrence vote following the summer recess before heading to Democratic Governor Jerry Brown.

Obama Administration orders border patrol who encounter aggressive smugglers and terrorists to run and hide

In other words, the more lawless the invader, the more privileged he becomes. American law enforcement has gone from Wyatt Earp to Tiny Tim.

America what have you done to yourself!

“We are now taught in an ‘Active Shooter’ course that if we encounter a shooter in a public place we are to ‘run away’ and ‘hide’” union leader Brandon Judd wrote on the website of 3,300-member union local. “If we are cornered by such a shooter we are to (only as a last resort) become ‘aggressive’ and ‘throw things’ at him or her. We are then advised to ‘call law enforcement’ and wait for their arrival (presumably, while more innocent victims are slaughtered).”

Fox – Border Patrol agents in Arizona are blasting their bosses for telling them, along with all other Department of Homeland Security employees, to run and hide if they encounter an “active shooter.”

It’s one thing to tell civilian employees to cower under a desk if a gunman starts spraying fire in a confined area, say members of Tucson Local 2544/National Border Patrol Council, but to give armed law enforcement professionals the same advice is downright insulting. The instructions from DHS come in the form of pamphlets and a mandatory computer tutorial.

“We are now taught in an ‘Active Shooter’ course that if we encounter a shooter in a public place we are to ‘run away’ and ‘hide’” union leader Brandon Judd wrote on the website of 3,300-member union local. “If we are cornered by such a shooter we are to (only as a last resort) become ‘aggressive’ and ‘throw things’ at him or her. We are then advised to ‘call law enforcement’ and wait for their arrival (presumably, while more innocent victims are slaughtered).”

The FEMA-administered computer course, entitled “IS-907- Active Shooter: What You Can Do,” is a 45-minute tutorial that provides guidance to all employees on how to recognize indicators of possible workplace violence and what to do should their office be invaded by gunmen and focuses around three main options; either evacuate, hide out, or in dire circumstances, take action.

Once the course is completed, employees are urged to download additional materials including a summary booklet and pocket-sized card outlining protocol, which was also handed out to employees two months ago.

One DHS employee told FoxNews.com the instruction cards were handed out to employees six weeks ago. At the time, he assumed they were only for civilian employees, not armed law enforcement officers within the department, which oversees the U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

“Requiring BP agents to follow the same steps is egregious,” he said.

DHS officials maintain that the Active Shooter course was designed for all employees—civilian and law-enforcement officers– and no one should rush into a situation where they, or others around them, could get hurt.

“The Department of Homeland Security takes very seriously its responsibility to protect all of its employees from threats that may surface in the workplace,” U.S. Customs and Border Protection spokesman Michael Friel said in a written statement to FoxNews.com Continue reading

Dictator-in-Chief Obama’s top 10 power grabs

Mussolini has nothing on this fascist. Should America prove irredeemably insane and give this malignant narcissist and megalomaniac a second term, then we ain’t seen nothin’ yet.

By: Human Events

Obama’s power grabs are designed to implement his ideological goals, no matter whether they violate his oath of office. November can’t come soon enough.

1. Immigration

By declaring that he will no longer deport most young illegal immigrants, Obama is refusing to follow congressionally passed immigration bills signed into law by earlier presidents. For a constitutional law professor, Obama seems to have forgotten that a presidential administration is supposed to administer the law, not pick and chose which ones to enforce.

2. Fast and Furious

With Obama asserting executive privilege to keep Fast and Furious documents hidden, one has to wonder what the administration is hiding. Why risk a contempt of Congress charge against the attorney general unless the material is politically explosive? The president’s action was reminiscent of Richard Nixon, but no one died at Watergate.

3. Drones

Where is the anti-war left, which was so incensed when President George W. Bush indefinitely detained terrorists but are nearly mute over Obama personally targeting drone victims? The drones aren’t just killing terrorists but also are claiming numerous civilian victims and Obama has deemed that any males near the selected target are fair game for slaughter. It makes Guantanamo look like the more humane option.

4. Obamacare

Obama and congressional Democratic leaders ignored the wishes of the American people and passed into law a highly partisan and unpopular health care bill. The way Obamacare was enacted into law stretched the boundaries of legislative maneuverings by doling out goodies to fence-sitting congressmen. Now there is word from the White House that even if the Supreme Court overturns the law, the president will implement much of it by executive order.

5. Defense of Marriage Act

The Defense of Marriage Act is another area where the Obama administration is deciding which laws to enforce and ignoring ones it doesn’t like. Signed into law by President Clinton, the law defines marriage for federal purposes as the legal union of one man and one woman. Apparently enforcing that law is not popular with the president’s campaign donors.

6. Recess appointments

Most presidents make a recess appointment or two during their time in office, but Obama’s method of implementing the practice circumvents the Constitution. The law allows the chief executive to install an official without Senate approval when the chamber is not in session. But when Republicans kept the Senate officially open by scheduling informal sessions during a break, Obama went ahead and made his appointments anyway.

7. Ideological appointments

If personnel is policy, then it should come to no one’s surprise that president’s agenda tilts solidly to the left. Instead of simply looking for the best person to do the job, Obama populated his administration with left-wing ideologues, often drawn from academia and the activist community, meant to advance a progressive agenda. How else to explain Labor Secretary Hilda Solis or Energy Secretary Steven Chu?

8. Executive orders

Obama has signed 128 executive orders, making his own laws by bypassing Congress. The orders have ranged from the futile (closing the Guantanamo Bay terror prison), to the hypocritical (ending torture of terrorists while escalating the drone program, killing them instead.) It is Obama’s favorite method of ignoring laws he doesn’t like (immigration, see No. 1, and DOMA, see No. 5.). He used it to allow states to bypass the No Child Left Behind requirements. Someone, please give this man a copy of the Constitution.

9. Emergency powers

One of Obama’s executive orders deserve special mention: “National Defense Resources Preparedness.” Stunning in its scope, the order gives the president the power to essentially take over the nation’s industrial and technological base in case of a national emergency. Remember, this is the president who doesn’t like to waste a good crisis (see Emanuel, Rahm, 2009).

10. Global groups

Obama is fond of ceding U.S. powers to multilateral organizations like the United Nations, World Bank, International Monetary Fund, and NATO. His “leading from behind” during the Libyan conflict is a case in point. Instead of allowing Congress to perform its constitutional duty to declare war, Obama asserted the U.S. military into the conflict through NATO, with the military alliance calling the shots over U.S. troops.

Longtime useful idiot John Kerry insists we not prejudge Egypt’s new Muslim Brotherhood government

Kerry has backed every foe America has ever had. His advice is not worthless, however. No matter the issue, and especially foreign affairs, if one wants to know the right thing to do, then do the opposite of whatever John ‘D-student’ Kerry suggests.

Via PJM (via WZ)

The chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee warned against “prejudging” the Muslim Brotherhood as Mohammed Morsi became Egypt’s first Islamist president today.

“During my recent visits to Cairo, I’ve had two candid discussions with the new president. He’s acknowledged that the central issue to Egypt’s future is economic. His words suggest he understands the gravity of the challenges facing Egypt,” Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.) said today.

“In our discussions, Mr. Morsi committed to protecting fundamental freedoms, including women’s rights, minority rights, the right to free expression and assembly, and he said he understood the importance of Egypt’s post-revolutionary relationships with America and Israel,” he added. “Ultimately, just as it is anywhere in the world, actions will matter more than  words.”

Kerry also believed that Bashir Assad could be reasoned with.

Terrorist-supporting novelist, Alice Walker, puts kibosh on Hebrew edition of her book that wasn’t even offered to her and was already in print

What a twit.

So, the overrated has-been is starved for a little publicity once again. Here’s what I wrote when the useful idiot joined up with Gaza flotilla gang of miscreants and terrorists almost exactly a year ago. It’s just as applicable now:

…Alice Walker, who thinks that America and Israel are the world’s worst terror states, has decided to join the terrorist-supporting Gaza flotilla. She called the Leftist activists, “some of the best people on earth.”

Walker has no problem with Islamic terrorists who target innocent women and children, and who call for the eradication of an entire people, as the Hamas charter most certainly does.

She has no problem with Muslim ‘honor killings,’ female genital mutilation, second-class citizenship for women, or any of the myriad of other daily outrages committed upon her fellow ‘sisters’ throughout the Islamic world.

Walker has been feeding off of the fame of a single book published in 1982, The Color Purple. After 30 years of mediocrity, she feels compelled to start a new career as a supporter for radical Islam and its adherents. The very country whose freedom allowed her to live a life of fame, money, and privilege, she repays with slanderous bile.

Hey Alice, do you think a book like ‘The Color Purple’ could ever have been published in an Islamic country and then made into a major motion picture? More Israelis have probably read your book and seen your movie than the entire Arab world combined.

But hey, thanks for allowing posterity to know who the real Alice Walker is, and what an absolute fraud and ignoramus she truly is.

Meanwhile…

The Blaze spoke to a staffer in the production department of Yediot Books in Tel Aviv who said the publishing house had no plans to translate the book, and no earlier versions of the book appear in its catalogue. According to the newspaper Globes, the book was translated into Hebrew in 1984. The catalogue of the Israeli book website “Simania” writes the Ladori Publishing house released the book previously in Hebrew.

That’s weird, huh?

You can read her supposed letter to the Israeli publisher here. In it she lectures the company about “Israeli appartheid,” displaying her colossal ignorant in all its brain-addled glory.

See Phyllis Chesler’s take down of Alice Walker in her pieces, ‘Alice Walker: Stop Telling Lies About Israel’ and ‘The Flotilla of Fools off to Gaza’.

Alice Walker – Liberal hack and terrorist sympathizer

JTA — Alice Walker, author of “The Color Purple,” refused to authorize a Hebrew translation of her prize-winning work, citing what she called Israel’s “apartheid state.”

In a June 9 letter to Yediot Books, Walker said she would not allow the publication of the book into Hebrew because “Israel is guilty of apartheid and persecution of the Palestinian people, both inside Israel and also in the Occupied Territories.”

In her letter, posted Sunday by the Palestinian Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel on its website, Walker supported the boycott, divestment and sanctions movement and offered her hope that the BDS movement “will have enough of an impact on Israeli civilian society to change the situation.”

It was not clear when Yediot Books, an imprint of the daily Yediot Achronot newspaper, made the request, or whether Walker could in fact stop translation of the book. At least one version of the book has already appeared in Hebrew translation, in the 1980s.

Walker said Israelis policies were “worse” than the segregation she suffered as an American youth and said South Africans had told her it was worse than Apartheid.

“The Color Purple,” which won the 1983 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction, was adapted into a movie in 1985 directed by Jewish filmmaker Steven Spielberg.

The novel and the film, which was nominated for 11 Oscars, treat racism in the American South in the first part of the 20th century and sexism among blacks.

Walker has intensified her anti-Israel activism in recent years, traveling to the Gaza Strip to advocate on behalf of the Palestinians.

9 Palestinians face death penalty for selling property to Jews, “traitors” hunted down by European NGOs

The Left’s hatred for Jews is so absolute that they spend millions to hunt down Arabs who sell any land to Jews by their own free will. It can be argued that the greatest obstacle to peace today is not the Fakestinians, but Leftists who go out their way to create resentment and stir up trouble.

(Honestreporting.com) – At least 16 Palestinians are sitting in PA prison for selling property to Jews, and nine of them face the death penalty. Even more explosively, several non-governmental organizations appear to be complicit in the hunt for the “traitors.” Aaron Klein (via Elder of Ziyon) reports:

The PA sources told KleinOnline that the Palestinian government recently formed a unit with a $2.7 million yearly budget to investigate property sales to Jews as well as any Jewish communities, outposts or military bases that may be sitting on Arab-owned land. The unit works with nongovernmental organizations, including European-funded NGOs.

The number of Palestinians imprisoned for land sales to Jews is much larger than previous reported . . . .

Over the years, scores of Palestinians have been put to death in judicial and extrajudicial killings after being accused of land sales to Jews.

Imagine the outrage if A) Israel did this B) with help from NGOs C) funded by European countries that oppose capital punishment.

Obama foot dragging forces Canada to go ahead with Keystone pipeline to China

No president who truly cared about his country would have allowed this to happen. But Barack Hussein Obama is no ordinary president. In fact, he is not even an ordinary citizen. The man spent his entire life going out of his way to reject and punish America.

_________________________________________________________________

Via Gateway Pundit:

The Keystone Pipeline project was expected to create tens of thousands of high paying jobs in the oil industry. The project itself would create 20,000 construction jobs. And the pipeline would bring oil from Canada and North Dakota to refineries in the United States.

But it was just a big pipe dream.

(Bob McCarty)

With gas prices at record levels…
Barack Obama rejected the pipeline earlier this year.

Now Canada is building pipelines to sell gas to China.
John Sexton at Breitbart.com reported:

In April, Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper revealed disheartening consequences for America’s energy policy at a think-tank event in Washington. Asked about President Obama’s decision to put off a decision on the construction of the cross-border Keystone XL pipeline, Harper explained that it would permanently alter Canadian energy policy.

What it really has highlighted for Canada is that our issue when it comes to energy and energy security is not North American self-sufficiency. Our energy [issue] is the necessity of diversifying our energy export markets. We can not be, as a country, in a situation where really our one, and in many cases almost only, energy partner could say no to our energy products. We just cannot be in that kind of position.

Harper went on to say that the alternative to a pipeline south into the Gulf region of the United States was a pipeline west to reach the markets of Asia. Now fast forward a couple months, and the New York Times is reporting this:

While Joe Oliver, Canada’s minister of natural resources, said in an interview that the United States would remain Canada’s “most important customer,” billions of barrels of oil that would have been refined and used in the United States are now poised to head elsewhere. Expansion of Canada’s fast-growing oil-sands industry will be restricted by the lack of pipeline capacity before the decade’s end, he said, which “adds to the urgency of building them so that the resources will not be stranded.”

Three new pipeline network proposals — two that call for heading west and the other east — have been put forward.

In other words, Stephen Harper was not making an idle threat or a political statement. Canada is moving full speed ahead with plans to sell tar-sands oil to other consumers, particularly China.

Video interview: David Horowitz – Obama is a creature of the left-wing money machine

David Horowitz is interviewed about his new book, ‘The New Leviathan: How the Left-Wing Money-Machine Shapes American Politics and Threatens America’s Future.’ In the interview he exposes the behemoth leftist money machine that dwarfs anything Republicans can put together. The size and scope of the leftist machine is truly staggering.

Obama Administration admits to “hundreds” of closed-door meetings with jihad-supporting CAIR

Imam Obama and the pro-terrorist organization CAIR are frighteningly tight. CAIR was an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation trial and has links to Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood. It is nothing but a Islamist front group with the goal of spreading sharia in America and destroying the country. This ought to cause outrage across the country, but the media won’t report on it so few will ever know.

Daily Caller  (via Weasel Zippers) -  President Barack Obama’s deputies are holding “hundreds” of closed-door meetings with a jihad-linked lobbying group that is widely derided by critics as a U.S. arm of the theocratic Muslim Brotherhood.

The admission of meetings with the Council on American-Islamic Relations came from George Selim, the White House’s new director for community partnerships, which was formed in January to ensure cooperation by law enforcement and social service agencies with Muslim identity groups in the United States.

“There is hundreds of examples of departments and agencies that meet with CAIR on a range of issues,” he told The Daily Caller, after being asked if his office refuses to meet with any Muslim groups.

CAIR is “the group with the worst record of deception and the deepest ties to terrorists,” said Steven Emerson, the director of the Investigative Project on Terrorism, which tracks the public activities of Islamist lobbying groups.

The House of Representatives last month prodded the Department of Justice to end all contacts with CAIR.   Keep reading…

Rep. Gohmert rips into Eric Holder: Your job is JUSTICE Mr. Attorney General!

Gohmert really lets Holder have it. “Why in the world would your department be more considerate of the terrorists than the congress that can defund your department?!”

Holder replies that he sees the political nature of his department as much more important than justice. Not in those words, but that is what he certainly means. What a scumbag. Holder can never look these guys in the eyes because he knows he is so full of crap that it is coming out of his own.

The Obama Administration is a 5th column. How is it possible that this America-hating traitor could still be in office?

Jun 7, 2012 by – Rep. Louie Gohmert (TX-01) questioned U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder in the House Judiciary Hearing on Oversight of the United States Department of Justice. He demanded answers and asked Holder who authorized the fast and furious gunrunning scandal.
